Suppressing the Christian World View, Step by Totalitarian Step…
It seems the editors of Mississauga News Magazine are utterly incensed that the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board near Ontario, Canada would not allow a student to form an official Gay/Striaght Alliance club at one of their secondary schools:
The nerve! This is a human rights issue and the Catholic board is coming out — excuse the term — on the wrong side of the argument.
Yeah, yeah… How dare those bigoted, homophobic, hate-mongering Christians manage their own schools according to their own religious precepts?
The editors of the Mississauga News are not the only self-appointed culture police to swing into action:
In response, NDP [New Democratic Party] education critic Rosario Marchese called on Premier Dalton McGuinty to force GSAs into the Catholic boards, and the homosexual lobby group Egale denounced the board and the authentically-Catholic group Courage in a March 22 open letter to the Ontario government.
Well then, how about this? What if that same Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board were to show that they are not ‘anti-gay’ in some other way?:
At an equity conference next month, Ontario’s Dufferin-Peel Catholic school board will feature several homosexual activists including one gay magazine reporter who covered the 2010 Toronto Pride Parade, with video showing him gleefully interviewing various Pride participants, including men dressed in sado-masochistic thongs.
At one point in the video, the reporter lies down on the street as a man in drag simulates a sex act on him. “This is the best Pride present ever. I’m having a great Pride week,” says Michael Pihach, a reporter with Xtra!, “Canada’s gay and lesbian newspaper.”
(See video here. Warning: extremely offensive content.)
Do you think that would appease the gay-identity-politics thought gestapo of Mississauga? Can the sex radicals of our age ever be appeased? (Those are intended to be rhetorical questions, by the way…)
What the Catholic District School Board has succeeded in doing, however, is raise the ire of many of the Catholics of Dufferin-Peel:
“I can’t believe that the school board would bring such people to a conference. I don’t understand it,” said Francis Rodrigues, a concerned local Catholic in Dufferin-Peel. “I mean, it’s common sense. We’re entrusting our children to these people and this is what they do.”
“I think it’s a scandal, pure and simple,” said Rodrigues. “I think that the bishops must intervene and try to save what’s left of the schools,” he added.
Sorry Frank, but when there’s a conflict between the values of the sex radiclas and the Church, we Christians are expected to kowtow. That’s just how it is. You’ll have to learn to follow the example of some of our Catholic friends Down Under:
An Australian Catholic secondary school has withdrawn permission for an event featuring a former homosexual speaker at the school, saying the presenter is not in line with Christian values and that “the Catholic Church abhors all forms of homophobia.”
See? Some ‘Christians’ have learned how they’re supposed to behave if they want to get along in this brave new world of ours…
The world’s Christians have understandably begun to look desperately to their fellow Christians in America to hold the final line against the totalitarian movements arrayed against the Church. We may soon be the last place on Earth where freedom of religion truly thives. Of course, that will not be the case if the agents of politcal correctness have their way. They are absolutely determined to bring us into line the way they already have most of the Western World just as we are absolutely determined to preserve our freedoms.
Well, to loosely paraphrase a favorite saying of the Second amendment ‘fanatics’: If You Want Our Freedom of Conscience, Our Freedom to Worship as We Believe We Should, Our Freedom to Practice Our Religion – Openly and Without Fear of Reprisal, Our Freedom to Parent Our Own Children as We See Fit, or Any of Our Other Freedoms; Then You Can PRY Those Freedoms Out of Our Cold Dead Hands. (OK, that’s an ackward mix of metaphors, but you get my point…)
That’s my attitude, anyway.
